VA Retail Immunization Care Coordination Program
VA and Walgreens are national partners, providing no-cost flu shots to enrolled Veterans of the VA health care system. From August 1, 2015 to March 31, 2016, enrolled Veteran patients nationwide have the option of getting their flu shot at any of Walgreens’ 8,000 locations in addition to their local VA health care facilities. Walgreens has the capability to electronically send vaccination information to the VA electronic health record (EHR). The VA-Walgreens national partnership is part of VA’s eHealth Exchange project. Last year’s national pilot program ensured that many Veterans got their no-cost flu shot at their local Walgreens, satisfying their wellness reminder because they either found it more convenient or did not have a scheduled appointment at a local VA health care facility.
